Singapore Banking Facilities

You may find it necessary to open a local account at a local banking institution in Singapore.  Check with the institutions for their specific services and fees.  There is a minimum balance required to keep the accounts open, and these vary among institutions.  When opening a local account, you must have your passport with appropriate immigration stamps.  Most institutions will accept a U.S. check, but it will take 3-6 weeks to clear and there will be a fee for this service.

ATMs are available throughout the island.  Service charges vary with each ATM, and balances are shown in Singapore Dollars, not U.S. Dollars.
